Marie Sklodowska-Curie Postdoctoral Fellowships are provided to excellent researchers, undertaking international mobility either to, or between, EU Member States or Horizon Europe Associated Countries, as well as to non-associated Third Countries.

The goal of MSCA Postdoctoral Fellowships is to enhance the creative and innovative potential of researchers holding a PhD and who wish to acquire new skills through advanced training, international, interdisciplinary and inter-sectoral mobility. 

Applications are made jointly by the researcher and a beneficiary in the academic or non-academic sector.

Application process

It is essential that applicants make contact in advance with a relevant member of Institute of Archaeology academic staff who should agree to be their mentor and jointly complete their draft application, using the templates which will shortly be made available for this year's competition via the EC Funding & Tenders website. Applicants will be required to confirm their own eligibility following the criteria set out there.

The Institute of Archaeology review panel will assess draft applications on the following criteria only: quality of the individual applicant appropriate to their career stage (peer-reviewed publications etc.), ambition and feasibility of the research proposal, fit of the project with the applicant's existing experience and with current Institute of Archaeology research.

Following the initial review by the Institute of Archaeology panel, selected candidates will then be mentored through the application process by UCL and Institute of Archaeology staff.

Applications should be submitted by email to Jo Dullaghan, Institute of Archaeology Research Administrator, by the internal deadline and to whom any queries may be addressed.

  • Institute of Archaeology deadline: 5pm on 30 July 2021
  • MSCA-PF-2021 EC deadline: 4pm (UK time) / 5pm (Brussels time) on 12 October 2021
